They should have used that turtle pic for the "To Terrapin" cover, instead of the pic they used. :)

Yes indeed...it has some flaws, BUT I have about 15 shows ingrained in my brain, "date wise", that I draw on all the time, and this is defn one of them:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd70-06-07.sbd.hollister.98.sbeok.shnf

I would say 8-24-68, 10-12-68, 12-29-68, 2-28-69, 4-5-69, 11-8-69, 5-2-70, 6-7-70, 9-19/20-70, 2-18-71, 7-2-71, 8-6-71 & 11-7-71 are the ones that pop out of my mouth more than any others by far...Pathetic, eh? A mere THREE years contained therein. Song selection is limited too. But, those last few months add a crapload, and so do the acoustic shows. So THERE!, JOTS...

6/7/69 has the first Dire Wolf - a beautiful Mountains>Dark Star - and Janis Joplin during Lovelight. (However the last half-hour of the show is on a degraded reel.)

6/7/70 has the amazing Other One>Cryptical>Main Ten, probably my favorite after 5/2/70. Plus the first Sugar Magnolia, with some teething troubles....

I like in the Janis Lovelight where she says to Pig: "What Do You Like?" and he says: "Turn around..." :)

Not sure if you caught me babbling with Baron below about DS and OOnes we like, and it was indeed the one from 5/2 that folks were discussing at the DEAD store in the review section, stating it was THE best one...it is a good one.

Don't think I heard it before... Cryptical Reprise in 6-7-70 IS quite good.

Here's a nice bit of commentary by our own CPW on 6-7-70:

"Reviewer: cream-puff-war - - October 13, 2005
Subject: Louie Louie, go home!

While memories of this and the half dozen other 1970 evenings I spent with the Dead are fading fast, by the mid-70s I was certain that the summer Filllmore West shows were among my favorites attended in that year or any other. Unlike a lot of places that were used for live concerts, the Carousel was actually built (in the swing era) for sound. The 1970 shows, as is so often said about Dead shows in general, were ones you had to be there to fully appreciate. This is a wonderful show not so much for being one of the best recordings extant from that year, but mainly for how well the band worked the acoustics of the venue and the overall intimacy of the Carousel Ballroom (FW). The place had good vibes and they (and everyone else) seemed to really enjoy themselves there.

Of the various Bay Area venues over the years I experienced them in a live setting, I preferred this one over Winterland, Harding Theater, Berkeley Community Theatre, Berkeley Greek, Cow Palace, Kezar, the park and certainly the Oakland Coliseum. To get a sense of how good they were live in 1970, the New York shows are far better recordings but the Carousel was relaxed, like home. No one minded a few flubs, when the show overall was as good as this one. Jerry was in his element playing all 3 sets, literally sitting in for the mid-set with NRPS while sitting on the pedal steel as a side man (though out front center stage)I think this is the week where the oft-used expression, "an Evening with the Grateful Dead" was born. Thanks to the archive we can enjoy memorable moments such as when Bob Weir went something like - "Who is that guy?" to a hipster in the crowd requesting an obscure number..."You're always requesting 'Golden Road'... and we don't know how that goes anymore..." I thought the dude either asked for "Quadlibet For Tenderfeet" or, "Whatever Became Of The Baby"... actually, someone yelled out for "White Rabbit" or maybe it was "Louie Louie"! Whoever he was, he probably made oddball requests on more than one occasion. This time the lights went up for a sec and he was caught in the act!"

Even though it's the 8th right now for me, I'm starting my day with 6/7/70. The office is empty, so I may dance about a bit as well.

OK, as long as you're alone...You can even chant during the OOne if you want. Or burn incense; I used to do that while listening but suppose it wasn't healthy.

I'm not allowed to burn anything in my office. Delicate audio equipment and ash do not mix.
